The old adage goes as follows: Don’t do the crime if you can’t do the time.
Dr. Conrad Murray was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in connection with the death of Michael Jackson in 2009. Murray was able to obtain and administer illegal amounts of propofol, the potentially lethal pain killer, which Michael Jackson was alleged to be abusing.
According to TMZ, Murray is having a tough time adjusting to his life behind bars. Murray has been calling friends on the phone and leaving voice mails lamenting about being in “constant pain.”
“I can’t sleep now, it’s very hard and I’m in constant pain. All I am asking for is can someone please help me please …please give me a little bit of help. I tried calling my attorney, she can’t even pick up the phone…and do me a favor…if somebody could just maybe call the sheriff himself, call Sheriff Baca..ask him to please see me, maybe he doesn’t know what happens in here. I don’t understand for 8 months I’ve been in this pain but more and more loss of my limbs… for 6 months plus they have ordered an MRI which has not come to pass. I’ve been taking the Motrin that they’ve given me but it doesn’t take the pain away.” (NewsOne.com)
Murray has been incarcerated for more than a year at a Los Angeles County Jail. He is expected to be released at the end of this year.
